CLIENT OPENING: À perte de vue / Endless Landscape at AXENÉO7
AXENÉO7’s ambitious Canada Scene project a first of its kind in the region.
Involving 12 leading Canadian and Indigenous artists À perte de vue / Endless Landscape produced massive installations inside of Le Fonderie, a heritage building with historic significance to the Gatineau region. The curatorial focus was to have the selected artists produce “monumental works that bring artists, thinkers, and audiences together to reflect upon the intricate relationship Canadians and First Peoples maintain with the land” in this historic building with over 58,000 square feet. The impact, once inside is, is tremendous and after much hard work and lots of wet weather the opening started with a rainbow arching over the landscape nearby.
